In a world of reboots, there is one that will still be unique in this television landscape. CBS’s MacGyver brings back everyone’s favorite genius with a hack. Executive producers James Wan and Peter Lenkov joined cast members Lucas Till ( “Angus MacGyver”) and George Eads (“Jack Dalton”) at San Diego Comic-Con on Thursday for a panel that promises to pay homage to the original.
Watch the entire panel here below.
Set for Fridays in the Fall, the panel promised to bring as much action, excitement, and intelligence as Richard Dean Anderson’s iconic show. They held an Q & A next and showed the audience a special clip. It’s a hack!
Q: “How did playing Havoc in the X-Men franchise prepare you for this role?”
Till: “Now I can be the fun version of myself in this role.”
MacGyver premieres Friday, September 23rd, 2016 on CBS.
MACGYVER, a reimagining of the classic series, is an action-adventure drama about 20-something Angus “Mac” MacGyver, who creates a clandestine organization within the U.S. government where he uses his extraordinary talent for unconventional problem solving and vast scientific knowledge to save lives. Joining his team on high-risk missions around the globe is maverick former CIA agent Jack Dalton and Patricia Thornton, ex-field agent turned director of operations. At home, MacGyver is entertained by his ambitious roommate, Wilt Bozer. Under the aegis of the Department of External Services, MacGyver takes on the responsibility of saving the world, armed to the teeth with resourcefulness and little more than bubble gum and a paper clip.
